Motorcycle Accident Injuries

A Columbus Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Who Fights for Clients' Rights

Drivers and passengers in auto accidents sometimes are lucky enough to walk away without a scratch, even if their vehicles sustained major damage. One reason is the safety features in modern vehicles, which include airbags and seatbelts. Riders on motorcycles, however, have little to protect them in a motorcycle accident. They often face significant injuries in accidents due to the lack of crash protection.

In many motorcycle accident personal injury cases, the Smith Law Office will work hard to get a victim compensation to manage the life-long impact of the injury. This is compensation that may be in addition to compensation for medical bills and lost wages.

Unfortunately, it's not unusual for someone to become paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury, or to sustain amputation, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other severe injuries, including head injuries, leg and knee injuries and road rash. In cases where a rider is struck in a head-on accident, the results are often fatal and, if negligence is a factor in the accident, may be grounds for a wrongful death claim.

Other motorcycle accident injury cases involve a multiple injuries of varying severity, including, but not limited to:

  • Broken bones
  • Extensive and severe abrasions requiring skin graft
  • Loss of use of a finger or fingers
  • Internal injury

Even a seemingly minor motorcycle accident injury can result in costly medical treatment and lost time at work. It can take months or even longer to fully recover from motorcycle accident injuries. Some injuries leave victims permanently disabled. Medical treatment may involve surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, specialists, medication, home health care and multiple follow-up doctor's appointments. The medical expenses add up quickly.

And there are other damages you've suffered, too. These may include lost wages because your injuries leave you unable to work. There may be disability or disfigurement. Other damages may include emotional distress and pain and suffering.

But insurance companies are only concerned about their own bottom line. Their main concern is to protect their own profits. So they'll try to pay you as little as they possibly can. They have lawyers who use all kinds of tactics to try to prevent you from recovering financial compensation for your injuries.
